Log Horizon Wiki

Theldesia (セルデシア, Serudeshia?, also spelled Celdesia and Serdesia) is the name of the Elder Tale world. It is divided into thirteen main regions (public servers), each with several Adventurer Cities that serve as hubs for Adventurers and People of the Earth alike. Outside Adventurer Cities are fields and dungeons where monsters reside, and Earthling settlements that Adventurers can visit for quests and items.

(Please note that the locations listed here are not comprehensive. These are taken either from the novels or from ideas Mamare came up with in his notes. However, he does not plan on expanding far beyond the Japanese and Chinese servers, so there is little detail on most of the other servers.)

Half-Gaia Project

Elder Tale's Half-Gaia Project recreated Earth in half-scale, and many real-life landmarks were faithfully recreated in the game. Furthermore, many Adventurer Cities are based on major old world cities.

Location names in Elder Tale tend to relate to their old world names. For example:

  • Akiba is named after an area within the city of Tokyo
  • Formosa Island (Taiwan) used an antiquated version of the island's name.
  • "Boxroot" is an English transliteration of Hakone (箱 hako, box + 根 ne, root).
    • Similarly, Tone's Grave is derived from the English translation of the Kazakh location name Tyuratam, meaning "Tóre's grave".

In other cases, they are also based on characteristics of an area: for example, the Pacific Ocean is called Athirds Ocean in Theldesia, since it covers approximately a third of the Earth's surface area.[1]

Servers

There are fourteen servers in Elder Tale, thirteen of which are open for public use. The fourteenth one, the Moon server, is used as a beta testing ground.

Most regions have their own sets of unique regional classes, which replace 1~3 "standard" classes.

The North American server is composed of the U.S.A and Canada. It is the only server with one unique class, Medicine Man.

In lore, continent of Wen (the Americas) was colonized by Euredan settlers seeking to escape the conditions on the continent.

Adventurer Cities

  • Big Apple: One of the first North Wen Adventurer Cities along with South Angel, little is known about this city aside from the June 1 Riots; someone who discovered Real Food Preparation attempted to monopolize it and charge exorbitant prices for his food, resulting in the breakdown of order in the city and public lynching. Leonardo hails from this city, but jumped through a Fairy Ring to escape the chaos. Some time after the June 1 Riots, Big Apple fell under the control of a mafia-style guild called The Family.
  • South Angel: The second of the original North Wen Adventurer Cities, it represents Los Angeles in real life. The headquarters for Atharva Inc., the game's original creators, are located here, so there is a large statue of an angel in the city which players jokingly make "pilgrimages" to.
Areas of Interest in North Wen
  • Beautiful Ocean Bridge (Key West, Florida - Overseas Highway US-1): As one of the longest bridges in the original world, it connects the island of Key West to the rest of the Florida Peninsula. Sandwiched between the two, the Seven Mile bridge towers over endless islands and coral reefs. Occasionally, speed freaks will hold racing events on the bridge, which are open to all Adventurers.

Regional Class Class Replaced
Viking Pirate
Skald Medium

Information about the classes will be covered in volume 15, the third and final part of Kanami's arc.

Run by the UK-based Red Branch Company, it is also the group that designed Elias Hackblade, showing the trust that Atharva Inc. has in them. The area corresponding to Britain in the real world is known here as the Ulster Knight Sword Alliance.

Some areas of interest in the server were briefly introduced in the Appendix of volume 11, while covering Kanami's path to the Chinese server.

Areas of Interest
  • Londonium (ロンデニウム): A Player City that corresponds with London in the real world.
  • Hollanland (ホランランド): Corresponds with Germany.
    • Walled City Hohen[In reference to Germany's Hohenschwangau Castle] (城壁都市ホーエン): Corresponds with the real-world Berlin. After the Catastrophe, the city was split into an eastern and western side as two guilds, the Golden Dragon Knight Corps[金竜騎士隊] and the Silver Tiger Mercenaries[銀虎傭兵団], descended the city into chaos in their battles for supremacy. The two guilds eventually came to an agreement after Kanami, to grant the wishes of the Earthling refugees she was helping evacuate, settled things "with a punch and kick."
  • Ghentholan-Nader Dominion District (Knights' Hall Ridderzaal): Corresponds with Gelderland in the real world.

Southeast Asian Server

Regional Class Class Replaced
Pesilat Monk
Dukun Medium

The Southeast Asian server (commonly abbreviated as SEA) is run by Philippines-based company Sarimanok Online Fantasy (サリマノック・オンライン・ファンタジー社).

Areas of Interest:

  • Leon City: Corresponds with Singapore in the real world.

South and Central American Server

Regional Class Class Replaced
Capoerista Monk
Pajé Druid

All that is known about this region is that it is run by a company called SPEEE.

  • Distrito Federal, abbreviated as D.F. (located where Mexico City is in the real world)
  • "Golden City" El Dorado

Western European Server

Regional Class Class Replaced
Paladin Pirate
Templar Cleric
Exorcist Medium

Information about the classes will be covered in volume 15, the third and final part of Kanami's arc.

Seven Hill: The area corresponding to real-life Italy is called Seven Hill. Its capital is the city of Romulusius, which corresponds to Rome.

  • Al Khandax Island: Crete in the real world. There is a dungeon there with an enemy called the Taurus Warrior, which Kanami was in the middle of soloing when the Catastrophe hit.
  • Daedalus' Labyrinth: A dungeon based on the legend of the Minotaur, located where real-world Crete is. Those who enter find that they cannot escape until they find Ariadne’s Thread, which returns them to the Great Temple of Athens. Even though Krusty acquired his Demon-Axe of Fresh Blood here, few Japanese players know of this Raid, and many presumed that the Japanese couldn't beat it.

Moon server

Main article: Moon server

2-09ShiroeDeath4.png

The hidden fourteenth server located on the Moon. During the game era, this server was called "N_VOEN" and was a testing server before expansions were rolled out. Shiroe created his Roe2 alt on this server some time prior to joining the Debauchery Tea Party. Whenever a new expansion is about to be released, N_VOEN is closed off starting around a week before the release.

After the Catastrophe, one of its areas, Mare Tranquillitatis has become the place where Adventurers go to after being killed. There, they sacrifice a small part of their memories in order to return home; since the process is instinctive, it is suggested that it is impossible for one to consciously resist it.

The Prison of Time, also on the Moon, is where the Genius currently reside.
